Hard, fast & fashionable: Orchids in Ida's hair, satin on her skin. December 3, 2013 01:05


The young Ida Lupino looks much too innocent for this drop-dead sexy vixen gown. But that doesn't mean you can't whip up a look-alike and 1930s-Butterick-7872 stand everyone back on their heels at a holiday soiree.

Although it's not an exact copy, View A of 1930s Butterick 7872 will certainly have the same effect on your audience. And it's a multi-purpose pattern with so many adaptations. It would be a bargain at full price. And at The Blue Gardenia's end-of-an-era sale, you can look as if you sauntered right off the runway and save the big bucks.

Here's the scoop:
